When the pre-school teacher asks the class, "What can you make with pumpkins?" and your 4 year old daughter says "Beer!", and then proceeds to explain how yeast converts sugar to CO2 and alcohol.

You notice that Taco Bell mild sauce is made from "yeast extract" and you wonder if you could harvest some and make a starter.

When your friends start placing orders for what beer you should bring to a party. 'I'd like some of the Cherry Stout you said was ready, and bring some of those Belgian Pale Ale's, those were awesome...'

And your response is to hug the beers closer to your body and protect them from the greedy hands that await... and then wonder if it would be wrong to ask for a tip...

I kid. I love sharing my homebrew!!!

When you sniff your airlocks.

Err, scratch that... when you even HAVE airlocks.

(There are way too many posts here that go something like, "When you look at your fermentor and you...". I'm pretty sure you know you're a homebrewer if you so much as *have* a freaking fermentor. You can stop there.)

I have a similar room. My electric brewery and a commercial pot-washing sink take up one wall, my fermentation chamber, more brewery storage, and the door take up the second wall, a 55" tv and shelves are on the third wall, and my computer desk is up against the fourth wall, across from the door.

My brewery is still a work in progress, but since I have thousands of dollars in electronics nearby, I'm spending lots of extra money putting together a transfer manifold including 3 pumps, about 20 motor-actuated ball valves, and a control panel necessary to operate those valves, so that I don't have to constantly play around with hoses, eliminating the chance of not closing the correct valve before I disconnect a hose and possibly spray water or wort all over everything. I've done it in a kitchen before - high pressure tap water (directly off the 1/2" pipe!), but luckily no damage that time.

When every room in your house has become a beer room. Bottles (hundreds) , kegs (10) , buckets of water (20+) for brewing, buckets and sacks of grains (about 400-500# worth), freezers for hops (about 50#), refrigerators for washed yeast (a few dozen Mason jars), vacuum sealers, brewing books, recipe logs, Star San buckets and kegs, a few bins for "misc" (unused taps, airlocks, bottling stuff, bags, washers), gallon+ of Star San, big bag of PBW, Iodophor, keezer full of kegs, three refrigerators with brewing stuff in them, three c02 regulators and three c02 canisters, a bunch of commercial brews because you wanted to compare them to your home brew and for new brewing ideas, ...

1. You think the song "Suds in the Bucket" is about Star-San
2. In restaurants you order beer in bottles so you can smuggle them home.
3. Your grocery purchases are based on whether the container can be used to ferment and/or store homebrew
4. Half of your freezer is full of frozen water bottles for your swamp cooler
5. You make "midnight requisitions" for bottles at certain bars/restaurants in the dead of night.
6. You set up a baby monitor so you can hear the airlock bubbling from your bedroom:
